About This Game

Leave the past in the past, the future's where it's at

Your name is Jay, and you have 24 hours left to live. There's one thing you have to do before it's over, and that's to confess to your crush that you love her.

Important Note
This game takes ~1-2 hours to complete. Additionally, there is a single ending from which there is no escape. Your choices will impact this ending in a minor, but fruitful way.


Gameplay: Follow the story of Jay, a recently awoken coma patient as he treks across New Jersey with a new friend. Make choices, meet people, see new places, and learn to embrace the excitement of the future

- Black, white, and red hand-drawn artstyle
- Get to know a new friend on a deeper level and explore the world of New Jersey together
- Rotoscope animation style that makes the characters appear to move rather than stay still
- Meet new people on your journey and experience the psychological horror that comes with each encounter
